    A beautiful, bittersweet young love story that examines the challenges of grief and otherness that face teens. This novel opens up human experiences and teaches compassion and understanding throughout its pages. I was given the opportunity to read the final draft of this novel and I...

    Without the dead sister and being transgender, its a cute summer romance. With it though it becomes something extraordinary. Told from both the POV's of Maia and Chris we get to see their romance blossom and hide their secrets. I loved getting in Chris's head, I don't really know a...

    I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars. "It's hard to figure out what you're supposed to be when you've never even really known who you were in the first place?that was something I'd realized only recently. Something I didn't think my friends would understand. After all, I looked the same an...

    This review was originally posted on my review blog Deanna Reads Books I haven't read a lot of books with trans characters as the main character, so Something Like Gravity was interesting to me because I really want to see diverse characters in books. This book does deal heavy with C...

    Unfortunately, Something Like Gravity wasn't for me. I'd picked up this book because of the trans rep, and not only did I find that the rep was potentially harmful, neither Chris nor Maia's stories were particularly captivating to me, and I was bored for most of the book. The book ...

    I enjoyed this book, especially because it had a FtM transgender character. I feel like there aren't enough books with transgender main characters and the way this was written was great. The rocky relationship Chris had with his mom felt real, obviously not all parents accept their tra...

    To see more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. Lets start with the cover. It looks like a lesbian romance novel. Chris does not pass in this picture. Why do I point this out? Chris passes 100% f the time in the book without any questions by anyone. He t...

    Full Review on The Candid Cover Something Like Gravity by Amber Smith is a contemporary novel all about first love. The characters are dynamic, and the topics are hard-hitting. This is a perfect novel for fans of Becky Albertalli to add to their summer TBRs. This book tells the s...

    Whew. Okay. Let me start with two things: 1) I am genuinely so sorry to any of my trans friends who may have been hurt by my initial positive rating/remarks about this book. I was seeing things through an incredibly ignorant (and cis) lens. This is one of those instances that remin...

    I LOVE AMBER SMITH! Something Like Gravity is a book about transgender and how it affects family as well as friendships, but especially the individual themselves. I feel Ms. Smith caught the emotions well of what it's like for a transgender person to live in today's world. The bull...

    Amber Smith has such a mesmeorizing way with words - I'm immediately enraptured and invested. Something Like Gravity is a beautiful love story between two people who are healing after their own personal tragedies. I thought Chris and Maia had some of the best chemistry I've ever read i...

    3 stars. 3 stars is NOT a bad rating for me. I think this book has a ton of merit to it, but it needed some more editing (too much details about things that don't really matter) and I didn't really feel like there was much of a plot?? and there was a plot point that made me feel a b...

    There is so much going on in here. A bit too much! Death, grief, parents who can't parent, lying, actual trauma. Do we have to have YA novels filled with so much conflict that it leaves you dizzy trying to figure out who the protagonist is. I think that's part of the problem. I felt li...

    LGBT+ rep? Particularly representation of a transgender person who's the main character of this book?? I repeat: the main character?? I'm down! It's about time the wide diversity of the LGBTQ+ community (among all of our marginalized communities) is represented in literature, movies, e...

    For Maia, Summer means working at her crappy job, dealing with her divorced-but-still-live-together parents, and trying to reconnect with the memory of her older sister, Mallory, who passed away unexpectedly. But then Chris shows up, moves in next door, and makes her fall in love with ...

    I was very excited to receive a digital advanced copy from NetGalley. It's my first one that I requested and was granted access to so it's a big deal to me. Of course this doesn't mean I'm going to give a book 5 stars or anything, I'm still going to give an honest review. Here goes: ...

    I?m going to trundle through my complaints first and then give a real, normal book review at the end. As a trans person who knows a lot (though not everything) about transitioning, passing and dysphoria, I noted that there were a lot of things related to Chris that didn?t make m...
